    Service was some of best we have ever had anywhere! Our wait-person interacted with us, was prompt, just excellent. She made for a wonderful dine! My trout was good but other dishes, like pasta, were just ok. Bacon wrapped dates were delicious! Could be we just ordered wrong for the venue… but we will try again soon!

    Our waitress was very helpful, and we liked sitting outdoors. Looks like a fun place to bring our grandkids in the future, nice lawn in the back with rocking chairs. The owners just need to add a few Corn Hole games on the back lawn!

    We were pleasantly surprised by this place! Outside seating was very nice. The spring weather was perfect. Live music was very good yet not at all too loud. They had a dozen different beers on tap and a full bar. And, the food was terrific (I had spicy grilled chicken with sweet potato fries, along with a fresh salad; my wife had one of the best burgers she'd eaten in the area)!

    We’ve been to Maven‘s for lunch and dinner and always enjoy it. The live music on Friday nights enhances the atmosphere. My steak was overdone but still good enough that there was no need to send it back. We will be regulars.

    This is the 1st time we've been here. The band on the patio was a little loud from our seats inside but wasn't loud enough to ruin our dinner. The food was great and our waitress was great I don't recall her name though. We will be back for sure. Its s diamond in the rough and the best thing is we didn't have to drive to San Antonio for a great meal

    We were celebrating a birthday and unfortunately the birthday person ordered a chicken dish that was very over cooked which made the chicken dry and tough. It ended up being a treat for our dog. They removed the cost of the dish from our bill( which was as it should be) but still it was a big disappointment for a celebration dinner.

    Went on Sunday at 3 pm and sat outside. Hardly anyone there at that off-time. Tina, our server, was outstanding - friendly and attentive. The owner stopped by our table to ask if everything was to our liking. I ordered the Adult Grilled Cheese, with cheese, bacon and jam - it was delicious as were the sweet potato fries. 2 people at our table enjoyed the hamburger. I hear the patio is loud when the band is playing at night, but there is plenty of seating further from the bandstand. Certainly will be back.

    Great location and outside areas. They have some experience to gain for service to flow right. Shouldn't have to wait as long as we did with as few people as were there. Shouldn't have to ask 2x for things and food should come out with the right sides. We'll give them a second chance...

    We started with the appetizer duo, we chose guacamole dip and pimento cheese (it was the highest priced appetizer on the menu, at $11), it came with about 10 chips and two tiny cups of dip. Three of us were going to share it and we barely got two to three chips each. They did take it off of the bill because we made a comment about it. Then we all ordered steaks. Two were sirloin and one ribeye. They were all over cooked. I got medium and it was well done the other two were medium rare and they were medium well. The salad is served with the dinner, so it all came out at the same time. For dessert we got the brownie and the red velvet cake and they were both delicious!! But they did not have any coffee. I am writing this review so that I can help them to get things together. I know it is so hard to start a new business. This is only constructive criticism. We will try again soon!!

    This much needed new dining option on the south side of Canyon Lake did not disappoint. Limited menu but everything my party tried was well-prepared and delicious (trout with cauliflower mash, smash burger, and grilled chicken Caesar were faves). The cocktails menu was nice---try the old-fashioned. The proprietors are very charming and clearly striving to offer a good experience (Erica made our first visit super pleasant). Attention has been paid to tasteful tableware selection and a variety of seating spaces The outdoor covered dining area (with stage for future music offerings) along with a huge fenced lawn strewn with tables and chairs make Maven's a good family option. Only slight criticism is that desserts are currently being imported from a nearby coffee shop and were a little dry and unimaginative. Hopefully the owners will branch out to other suppliers or develop a couple of in-house signature offerings.

    Hummus and guacamole dip were really good, as were the sirloin steaks cooked perfectly. Delicious margarita too. Service was good and pretty quick. Would like to see more menu options and more sides. Only 1 side with your entree. Took home chocolate brownies that were wonderful! Will definitely be back.

    The overall experience was great and the service was amazing. I ordered the 8oz sirloin it melt in my mouth. The Parmesan French fires were delicious. The Adult Grilled Cheese sandwich was also very good. The Mac & Cheese was plain and might be good for children. Would recommend adding an Adult Mac & Cheese and add jalapeños and bacon to it. The green beans were also a little plain would spice them up with some bacon or even adding the date jam might help. Again overall it great and so glad we have a new restaurant in the area.

    Very glad to see a new restaurant in the area. As a vegetarian I am always overjoyed to see plant based entrees on the menu however they need to work on the cauliflower steak. It was mostly raw with a slight char on the outside. They need to parboil first then grill to create a more succulent steak. I hope they continue to add more vegetarian options. The Fuzz Doctors provided the live music and really made it a fun evening.

    Food was good. Orders were not prepared properly and items were left off the plate, had to be requested to provide them. The place is far too noisy . Phone ringing off the hook, loud patrons who have already drank too much. Crowds of people brought in the door standing too close to table carrying on while waiting to be seated…all made for an unpleasant experience overall. This place will be much better after they work the kinks out of the plating and when lake season finally ends.

    Beautiful outdoor setting. Brand new so some start up issues but folks were trying hard to please. Gordon the Owner is terrific Thought prices were a little steep on food and adult beverages Great venue for live music. I would say Mavens has a very bright future.
